That could be cool...maybe bring it along if you've room and anyone reading this can knock something up if they want. We won't have our masterchef sadly but I'm sure we're all capable! Thank you.

Actually, I will make a point of asking people who are doing fluid jobs to ensure they have drain trays and a means of taking their old fluids away.

Just returned home from Techday.  Apart from the two hour traffic jam on the A130 it was a great day, most informative and good to meet friendly welcoming folk with bags of knowledge.  Thanks to all.

Thanks to all for the Tech Day today.

Managed to get all three jobs complete and rustle up a few bacon rolls. (I'll bring eggs next time Karl).

Thanks Karl for another awesome tech day. Managed to fit a new radiator, swap the flasher unit and swap the headlight lenses back to my preferred LED units.

Unfortunately, one of the intercooler pipes that I had to disconnect to get the radiator in didn’t get put back together properly, and it popped off on the way home, so no boost! No disaster, and easy enough to sort out on the driveway when I got home.

Thanks must go to Henry and his son for the use of the barn and opening/locking up. Excellent venue, excellent day! 

Glad it's nothing that caused a major problem.

Great tech day again, great venue. I always dread the thought of tech day but always come home from them having had a great time.

Hi

 

Thanks Henry and his son for the venue and Robbie for the supervision.

Thanks to all for a great morning of banter and car talk even if I did not fix anything.... 

The bacon rolls and coffee were very welcome too ......

So, a very successful tech day. Not only do I have a new radiator, I’ve got some new tools. Double-win! ;-)

A screwdriver (Gary), and pair of pliers (Andrew) and a 10mm socket (Robbie).
